1) Don't cry.
2) Search the forum before you post.
3) Copy setiface.ovr or setiXXXXXXXX.vpu (where XXXXXXXX is an hexadecimal number) to setiface.dll. Do that in avast4\setup directory.

Thanks for coming kubecj. Could you tell us why this is happening, I mean, the reason for so many updates troubles in last weeks?  ;)

I've gotta admit NIU80, I looked at Kubes post and thought I was in an Australian Lager forum  :)

I'm sure he'll come back with the simple answer  ;)

OK, let's explain that in more details (and decency :)):

There are two possible solutions of your problem:

Either
1) copy the file called setiface.ovr or setiXXXXXXXX.vpu (where the X's are some numbers) to setiface.dll, all in the <avast>\setup directory. Then retry running the update.

Or
2) download the latest avast installation package from http://www.avast.com/iavs4pro/setupeng.exe (I hope you're using the English version of avast) and run it on the machine.
That will repair the installation and also update it to the latest version for you.

I apologize for the inconvenience.

CoJo,

Darlin' you just can't catch a break can you? It's occurred to me that it would be easier if you junked your PC and bought a Mac.  But where would the fun be in that?  :D  Anyway, God bless you for persevering.  And so long as you do, so will we.

Regards,
Hornus

I would be happy if Hornus teach you how to update without disabling the firewall  8)

You are using the EZ firewall or something like that.
I use ZoneAlarm (and tried Sygate and Kerio some time ago).
Unfortunately, I don't know how it works.
In general speaking, the firewall must alert you that a program wants to connect the Internet (access rights). You can see and aprove it or not.
When some program asks for server rights (or the be connected from the Internet), does not allow it.
 
If this firewall is an 'inteligent' one, rule based, I mean, you built rules for the firewall to work... Then this is not with me. I like simple software, easy to understand. Complicated and difficult things are with techie and other members...
 
Bye.
